Kiko's name may come from combining the first two letters of both words in King Kong's name. Kiko is never referred to by name in the film itself, but is called either "Little Kong" or just "Baby."
Kiko closely resembles his father, but stands about 12 feet tall and possesses white fur and light gray skin.
Kiko lived on Skull Island for an unknown amount of time after his father was taken away by the crew of the S.S. Venture, and eventually stumbled into some quicksand, where he was saved by Denham, who had returned in search of treasure, and Hilda Petersen, who took pity on him. They knocked down a tree on which Kiko pulled himself out, before he was attacked by a Giant Cave Bear. He fought it off, but damaged his finger, and Hilda bandaged it with a piece of fabric she tore from her dress. Kiko then befriended them, and followed them as they searched the island. He later fended helped Denham to open a sealed temple on the island, and fought off the Dragon Dinosaur that had followed them inside. After helping Denham reach the treasure, an earthquake began to cause the island to sink into the ocean. Kiko climbed to the top of a mountain with Denham in hand to keep him above the water. Denham was rescued, and Kiko went down with the island.
As an April Fools Day prank, Peter Jackson made an entry in his video production diary of himself and the cast of the 2005 film proclaiming that they were remaking Son of Kong. The described plot involved Ann Darrow, Carl Denham, and Jack Driscoll returning to Skull Island and discovering Kiko, and riding on his back at some point. Eventually Kiko would be taken from the island, and fight in World War II with two Browning Machine Guns mounted on his shoulders. It should be noted that in the true continuity, Kong was the last of his kind, as confirmed by Carl Denham on a 1935 ecological expedition to Skull Island.
Kiko seems to have inherited his father's strength and intelligence. Despite his young age, Kiko is a capable combatant as he is able to fight and defeat a giant cave bear and a Styracosaurus, using both brute strength and strategy.

- Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts wanted the film's opening scene to involve World War II-era soldiers killing a baby Kong, but the idea was rejected by Legendary Pictures executives.
- In Peter Jackson's Son of Kong April Fools Day prank, Kiko was portrayed through stock footage of the gorilla from the remake of Mighty Joe Young, based on the 1949 film that used the same production team as the original King Kong film, as well as a white colored test animation model, and a crude sketch by Peter Jackson.
